Korean Ancient Spinning Machine in Hanok Village

Ancient Spinning Machine

What is this stuff? May be you have seen it in your school text book illustration.

There are pretty many antiquity farming tools well preserved in Namsangol Hanok Village. This hand operated spinning machine is one of the tools. Is it same as the old times spinning machine in your country?

Korean farmers of ancient times generally lived a life of simplicity. Housewives not only had to work in farm, they had to handle with the trivial housework. In addition to that they managed to find time to spin yarn and weave cloth.
